of the united states. >> joining me from washington. cnn senior white house correspondent jim acosta and dana bash and barbara starr. da dana i'm going to start with you. how much do you think pressure had on the president's decision? what has it pure politics here too? >> there's no question it was a significant factor, not the only factor. it's impossible to say that because there's so many weighing on the president's decision. not the least of which what is happening on the international level but my understanding in talking to several senators who are on phone calls and briefings over the past few days with top obama officials is that the pressure really was mounting. not just from republicans and not just from aennti-war libera democrats from saying you have to come to congress. if this is not something that's dire and if it were, the strikes would have happened 24, 48 hours ago, you have to come to congress and get authority from us. that absolutely was a factor. the question is whether or not the president is going to regret this decision because if he doesn't get the votes in the hous
correspondent dana bash is in washington. hi, dana. i know you have been working your sources all day. it looks from here like the mood in washington really seems to reflect the mood around the country right now on syria, it's conflicted. so, what are you learning right now? >> reporter: that's right, hi, jess. i should tell you that the conference call should be wrapping up right about now and i'm hoping to get a read on what the top lawmakers were told and whether their questions were answered. but, yes, you're right, the mood among members of congress i would say is beyond ambivalence, it's really frustration, 150-plus lawmakers are demanding that the president come to congress for authorization before any military action. that's big bipartisan group but it's a lot of anti-war and anti-interventionist congressmen. and the problem for the administration is even some lawmakers who i've spoken with who are natural allies with the obama administration at holding syria accountable have trouble supporting him because they feel that the administration isn't making enough of a case publicly or priva
. "state of the union" with candy crowley begins right now. >>> i'm dana bash in for candy crowley with breaking news we're following out of syria. a u.s. official tells cnn there's very little doubt that the assad government used chemical weapons against civilians. syria's government today said it will allow u.n. weapons inspectors to investigate the site where the alleged attack occurred on wednesday. the syrian government denies responsibility and is blaming rebels for the attack that reportedly killed 1300 people. now the incident is testing already-frayed relations between the united states and russia, which is warning the u.s. not to jump to conclusions about the syrian government. meanwhile, the pentagon has prepositioned four warships armed with cruise missiles in the region. joining me now is cnn's pentagon correspondent, chris lawrence, and cnn international correspondent, phil black live in moscow and cnn's fred platkin in damascus. fred, to you first. >> hi, dana. i had an interview earlier today with the deputy foreign minister of syria, who told me that the u.n. weapo
. >> allegedly, posedly, i'm sure it was true. >> joining us michael eric dyson, and dana milbank, michael, you've got a dream that joe walsh pays his child support, but on a completely bill o'reilly said that george w. bush wasn't invited, in fact he was invited, as was his fare, as was speaker john boehner, as well as eric cantor. so what gives here? >> the fact that the other shoe has dropped, and we know the real deal, let's see if they're equally aggressive about the as is of these noteworthy republicans. the fact is the civil rights movement at its broadest was a nonpartisan affair. martin luther king jr. and the other leaders of that particular march were invested in the radical transformation of america according to principles of democracy. if you were a supporter, whether libertarian, whether you were republican or democratic, then you could participate freely. the point is these republicans units that they are antitheyically opposed to every moment and gesture of black freedom that was articulated yesterday, and more broadly about progressive realization of rights for gale and lesbian

to be talking to dana bash our chief congressional correspondent who knows everything about congress. we'll ask her about all of this and it possible that congress may be called back from vacation? is it worth it? we'll pose those questions to dana bash. also coming up at 10:00 a.m. eastern, michael crowley from "time" magazine will talk about president obama and his changing stance on waging war or taking military action. should be very interesting. we'll be right back. when we made our commitment to the gulf, bp had two big goals: help the gulf recover and learn from what happened so we could be a better, safer energy company. i can tell you - safety is at the heart of everything we do. we've added cutting-edge technology, like a new deepwater well cap and a state-of-the-art monitoring center, where experts watch over all drilling activity twenty-four-seven. and we're sharing what we've learned, so we can all produce energy more safely. our commitment has never been stronger.

be, are not up for debate. cnn's dana bash, our chief congressional correspondent, joins me now. when you look at history, dana, it shows that presidents -- just a reminder. u i any you know this. presidents can launch military action without approval from congress. grenada, '83. pan na, '89. iraq, '91. haiti, '94. kosovo, '99. why a briefing in a couple of hours, dana bash? >> reporter: in short, politics. members of congress, even natural allies of president obama have been demanding coordination. tonight 6:00 p.m. this evening secretaries of state and defense and others will hold a conference call with president obama and other key committee heads to discuss the nation's posture on syria. what's interesting is that lawmakers are not here. they are still back in their states, in their districts on congressional recess. since they're all over the country, some will be on their cell phones. it is not going to be a secure line. meaning it can't be classified. it's going to be an unclassified conversation. one source who's going to be on the call who i talked to kind of rolled his eyes
targets in syria. our chief congressional correspondent dana bash is joining us on the phone. i've got through this letter. i know you have as well. he's raising all sorts of questions, this speaker. >> reporter: all sorts of questions, very specific questions about not just what kind of military action might the administration use, but more specifically what kind of information would they be basing this on, with regard to chemical weapons. what's very interesting about this letter is a couple things, first of all, the speaker make pretty clear that he agrees with the administration that syria is a very important area in national securitywise, and that he supports being aggressive with regard to potential for chemical weapons. he also says this -- i respectfully request that you as the country's commander in chief personally make the indication to the american people and congress for how potential military action will security american national security, and he goes on to say preserve america's credibility and deter the future use of chemical weapons. what he's trying to do here is kin
. jim acosta is covering events for us at the white house while dana bash is in our washington bureau. and, jim, the timing of this decision simply fascinating and based on what you're hearing, really last minute. >> very much so, john. this was a very dramatic development that took place here at the white house yesterday after his administration was essentially moving in the direction of eminent military action, perhaps as soon as this weekend. the president made a different decision. at 7:00 last night he really made a last-minute decision to slow down, buy himself some time, and seek authorization from congress. according to senior administration officials who explained how all of this played out to a group of reporters, within the last hour, it sort of takes a little bit of time to explain but it's worth listening to. at first the story first starts, according to the senior administration officials, that this option of seeking directional approval was not really talked about among his top advisers. it was something just just really kicking around inside the president's head, accor
congressional correspondent dana bash. dana, you have new information, as well. >> we've been talking about the fact that senators mccain, john mccain and lindsey graham released a statement, pretty hard-hitting statement, saying that they're very concerned about action being limited, as barbara was just talking about. i just got off the phone with senator graham to try to clarify if this means that he would actually vote against authorization if it would just authorize limited military force. what he told me is that they would only get his vote if, never mind how the authorization resolution was written, but if they -- in addition to that, gave him and other members of congress very clear timeline, explanation of what they blplano do afterwards, he and senator mccain has been focused on trying to train and harm rebels who are trustworthy in that area. he wants to have very clear information about that and if he doesn't, it will be hard for him to vote yes. why is this important? because he and mccain have been perhaps the most aggressive ong saying there needs to be action. he told me in a
to cover every angel of it beginning with dana >>> top obama officials insisted to lawmakers on the thursday night conference call they have no doubt ba sar assad's regime in syria was behind deadly chemical attacks there. secretaries of state, defense and others backed that up by revealing to lawmakers that the u.s. intercepted communications from a high level syrian official, which clearly indicates they were responsible for these weapons, that according to congressman el yol engel who participated in the call. though obama insists no decisions have been made, cnn is also told they privately made clear to lawmakers that chemical weapons in syria is such a threat the u.s. could engage with or without support from great britain. bob corker emerged from briefings thursday announcing support for surgical proportional military strikes, given the evidence of continued use of chemical warfare. bob menendez reaffirmed his support saying a decisive and consequential u.s. response is justified and warranted. . others argued the president still has to come before congress and the amer
. this came during a meeting with a delegation of syrian expatriates. dana bash is joining us on the phone. we know there have been some conference calls between the white house and republicans and democrats. what are you hearing? >> that's right. they're going to take place our understanding is in a couple hours with at least on the senate side with republicans and democrats, but we also just learned that tomorrow, that's sunday, the white house is offering or at least administration officials are offering to come to capitol hill on a sunday to offer a classified briefing on the intelligence that the u.s. has on syria's chemical weapons to any and all members who are in town. sunday is labor day weekend. unclear how many will be able to make it in but it's significant for several reasons. one is that members of congress have been real chomping at the bit to get, understandably, to get information in a classified way that makes them feel comfortable that any kind of military strikes would be justified, but also this is just tea leaf reading here, it might be questionable whether or not they wo
's begin, though, with your chief congressional correspondent, dana bash. she has details of the syria conference call with members of conference -- members of congress going on right now. da dana, what do we know? >> we know that it has begun and this is good news for lawmakers, who have been really asking the obama administration for more information, was we have pretty heavy hitters, the secretaries of defense and state, as you said. other officials, talking to congressional leaders and key committee heads of both parties. that's the good news for them. the bad news for these lawmakers is that obama officials are going to be limited in what they can say, because they're going to be talking, or are as we speak, on a phone line that is not secure. so what that means is that they're going to be able to discuss only unclassified information. and that could rule out what many of these lawmakers really want to know. what the intelligence the administration has the to back claims about assad using chemical weapons, not to mention military options for strikes against the syrian regime. that
at the dana-farber cancer institute where we can identify the patients who are, have a 50% chance of dying within the next six months and a few key, literally just some questions, 7 questions that should be asked of someone who is nearing death, that can make a huge difference. >> rose: like what? >> like dow understand what the status of your health s what your prognosis is. what are your biggest fears if your health worsens. what are your goals if time beings short? what are you willing to sacrifice, in time now, for the sake of time now. and the answers you get-- . >> rose: sacrifice time now for time later meaning. >> what are you willing to sacrifice, you know, medicine, what we give you will sacrifice l put new the hospital, sacrifice things that are important to you now what are you willing to sacrifice, what are you not willing to sacrifice now. and those answers, first of all they give a doctor and a team some guidance on what to offer. >> rose: a snapshot of the person's present. >> but even more it makes the person think and actually change their care. they become much more like
, and dana raurerbach. [ applause ] now, i've got to tell you the truth. i've been looking forward to this visit because -- and this is a little tricky to say this, but my family and i, we've got a special place in our hearts for the marine corps. part of it is because every day at the white house we're surrounded by marines. in fact, we probably got some folks here who were at the white house who are now here at camp pendleton. see? i figured as much. and then, of course, every time i need to kind of hop, skip, and jump somewhere, every time i get on marine one, i rely on some of the best aviators in the world. i've seen your honor. i've seen your courage. i've seen your commitment, whether in protecting our diplomatic posts around the world or preparing to deploy to iraq or afghanistan or recovering from wounds received in battle. you know, a few years ago you gave a great camp pendleton welcome to my wife michelle, and i know it's not as exciting when i come to visit, but she says hi. i guess i'm kind of like that army general who once said, the more marines i have around, the b
the president, but i want to bring in dana bash right now. there's a series of briefings being laid out by the administration. declassified briefings over the phone. and classified briefings tomorrow for those members who are in washington. say most members are back in their districts or traveling or some place else during this labor day weekend, congress is not in session. do we anticipate many members coming back to washington tomorrow to have access to that classified information? >> i believe that that is entirely possible, but before we talk about the briefings, i wanted to give you a little bit of news and that is you know, we've seen a series of statements from members of congress on their view on what the president should and shouldn't do. we wrus got a statement from senator john cornyn, republican of texas, the number two republican in the united states senate who is now calling on the president to bring congress back into session and ask for a vote on authorization to use force before any military action is taken in syria. now, we've seen calls like this from many members of
, he both -- lost both of them from both sides of the aisle. this week on "newsmakers," we had dana rohrabacher, who chairs the foreign relations committee on europe, eurasia, an emerging threat. he offered up his views on russia and the u.s. canceling that meeting between putin and obama. [video clip] it is imperative we have a good relationship with russia. yet we have this administration -- many republicans as well -- pushing russia away, still thinking about russia as it was during the cold war. this is no good for the cause of peace, and no good for us. >> russia is hosting edward snowden, who u.s. officials have said is the most damaging leaker in american history. i think what mr. snowden did, by alerting the american people to over surveillance on the part of our own government of our population, to call him a traitor -- he was being loyal to the rest of us by letting the american people know that their government was getting out of hand. host: that was congressman dana rohrabacher, republican of california. he serves as a member of the foreign affairs committee. you can see
to washington to our chief congressional correspondent, dana bash for more on what members of congress -- i know it's quiet in some parts of washington because many members of congress are still away on recess. we know that they were briefed via teleconference in that unsecure line so it wasn't classified, per se, last night. they've been speaking, i'm sure, with the administration today. what are you hearing? >> reporter: that's exactly right. i think a lot of what is going on as we speak is box checking by the administration. making sure that they speak to the key committees. last night what happened was secretary kerry, hagel and others spoke to the chair apd ranking members as well as the leadership in both bodies of congress. right now maybe even as we speak, there is a series of calls going from the national security council to the actual rank and file members of some of those key committees. so they are effectively, for lack of a better way to say, giving them a little love which members of congress always want from any administration, but especially as we've heard very loudly from some o
analyst gloria borger and chief congressional correspondent dana bash. the president hasn't made a final decision but everyone knows he has decided he is going to go ahead and launch some sort of strike against targets in syria. >> at this point it's not if but when. i think when you hear the president speak that way, it's clear he's got a lot of options on the table and maybe he was still deciding about a particular option, but i think you would have to assume given the fact that what we saw today was pretty much of a roll-out, first from the secretary and then the president himself. there was a background briefing for journalists with senior administration officials talking about the evidence on chemical weapons. they're clearly making their case. now the issue has been decided in great britain. they made a point of saying that they've got france and turkey with them. so i think what we're seeing is the beginning of the explanation of why they're going to go in -- >> they may have france and turkey's verbal support but i don't see any military hardware other than u.s. military hardware

're following, w r we're getting revelations, asking what the internal revenue service is up to. now dana bash has learned another powerful agency, the federal election commission may fall under suspicion as well, intentional harassment, i should say, not international harassment. what kind of information. at least -- one investigator was discussing the status of a conservative group called the american future fund. now he says shortly after lerner was contacted, the irs sent a questionnaire to that very conservative group. it is still unclear if it is in his words benign or sin sters. -- sinister. we reached out to the irs for comment and they said the irs takes its obligation to protect confidential information very serious live but they also simply can't talk, wolf, about specific ongoing cases. >> these e-mails began talking about e-mails that they want to hand over to them in congress. >> late last week, republicans in congress were investigating this, they released a few e-mail exchanges that they obtained between learner at the irs and an attorney at the american future fund and also a
